BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Prost Brewing Company
Colorado, United States | website

Style: Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This bier is delicate and pale with less bitterness than a Pils and less sweetness than a Helles. A subtle fruitiness is the hallmark of this classic style from Köln. Along with Alt, this is one of the last ale holdouts in Germany. (ABV 4.6% 22 IBU'S)

64 oz growler served into a marine corps faux-pilsner glass.

A: Pours a two finger wide head of white colour. Nice thickness and decent creaminess. Pretty good (4+ minute) retention. Great even lacing as the head recedes.

Body colour is a typical clear pale copper. Slightly below average vibrance. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Crisp straw and clean barley. Light floral hop character. Hints of light crystal malt. Grainy. Seemingly full-bodied.

No yeast or alcohol is detectable - nor should they be.

A pleasant aroma of mild to moderate strength.

T: Crisp straw. Clean barley. Minimal floral hop character, but it complements the malty build. A bit creamy towards the finish. Decently balanced, but perhaps overhopped based on the bitterness. Not much complexity, but then the style is a simple one. Some subtlety.

Flavour duration, intensity, and depth are average.

Likable but not up there with the greats in the style.

No alcohol or yeast comes through.

Mf: Crisp, smooth, and wet. A bit overcarbonated (even from the growler). Suits the flavour profile decently. Nice body and thickness.

Dr: Really drinkable; it hits style conventions on that point. My buddy and I would have little trouble killing the 64 oz growler. I'd get it again at a better price; $13.00 per 64 oz is too much considering the quality. It's not very traditional - which I'm having some trouble overcoming - but I do like it. A nice introduction to Prost brewing.

Another hit from Prost, this one comes from Koln...er, Denver. To style.

Light golden pour, clear and clean. Soft bright white foamy head, thick, builds to about 2 fingers. Stays around throughout at about 1/2 finger thick. Nice lacing. Looks great.

It has a sharp grassy hop aroma peppered with light spices. The biscuit and dough malts come through with just a little flutter of white grape, possibly Torrontes.

Flavor leans more toward the malt. Clean malt with a quick sharpness in the middle. Wee bit of sulfur or mineral. Floral. Soft biscuit and green grass. Refreshing.

This is a darn fine beer. Looks great and goes down darn smooth.
